Brand new sealed remastered reissue.
Stars is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Janis Ian, and the first of her seven for Columbia Records. Ian had previously had a three-year hiatus from the music industry since her 1971 album Present Company. In two years away from the music business, Ian wrote over 100 songs after moving to Los Angeles. She returned to play at the Philadelphia Folk Festival on August 17, 1973, and was signed by Columbia Records after several other companies rejected the songs she had written.
Whilst Stars was being recorded, the song "Jesse" became a hit for Roberta Flack. The album itself became Ian's most successful since her debut, peaking at number 63 on the Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart.
